A Personal Favorite

This is the Model 250 Vintage from RGM. It has long been a personal favorite of mine.

RGM is in many ways the flag bearer for watch making in the US since the turn of the century, and justly so. And ever since I started following watches, I have longed to own one.

I hope to sometime in the not-too-distant future to finally visit Lancaster and pick up one myself.  But for now I will admire it from afar ; )

Here are the pertinents, straight from RGM -

The 250 is a good size watch in diameter and in thickness, well suited for a larger wrist. The large Valgranges movement fills up the back of the watch and puts the calendar window in the ideal location for a watch of this size.

Functions: Hour / Minute / Second / Date
